European Elections

European voters voted to put the brakes (or at least a governor) on the march towards socialism in the latest European Parliament elections.
Conservatives had impressive, if not overwhelming, gains.

This is interesting. A lot of American conservatives and libertarians have warned that we are in danger of embracing European-style socialism. After the Obama  administration  (with some prepping from Bush, I'll admit) started nationalizing the banks and the car companies, I joked that maybe European politicians will someday warn against embracing American-style socialism.

Given recent events, this may turn out not be  a joke.
